Home Premium coupon for $12...has anyone gotten it to work?

Yeah I got XP MCE w/Vista Upgrade coupon to Home Premium. I have a question though...on the coupon since it is OEM it seems Microsoft thinks I'm an end user that bought it from another company. It says I need proof I bought a system myself, but it is a DYI build. Should I still try even w/o proof, or maybe mail reciepts for all my components?

  1. what have you got to lose? try it w/o the receipts.
  2. when i sent in my stuff for the upgrade they asked for p.o.p and i sent them my reciept but i have a # where you can call moduslink and hopefully it will help you out.
    btw dont expect to get your copy anytime soon been 3 weeks since vista and still not shipped to me yet.

    But, I was told, there is no way around that and I would need that receipt to upgrade.

    You should be able to provide a receipt(s) for the components that you bought with your OEM XP.
  4. i wouldnt be worried about saving $12 even since its causing you so much trouble
  5. you are misunderstanding the coupon. the coupon is for a full upgrade to Vista... not $12 off the upgrade. in other words you get Vista for $12.
  6. OMG!
  7. UPDATE

    YES! It worked! I mailed them Fry's and Newegg reciepts for all the parts and wrote a note saying I built it myself, and just recieved the email that it got shipped and should arrive in 3 weeks!
  8. Where did you get this coupon?
